Despite her mother's neglect into a clear eyed observer of the life around her The Wine of Solitude is a powerful tale telling less of the end of innocence than of disillusionment; the story of an upbringing that produces a young woman as hard as a diamond prepared to wreak a shattering revenge on her moth. Tender difficult memoir of the Russian diaspora during and after the Soviet revolution Nemirovsky has centered her narrative on the cities Kiev StPetersberg Helsinki and Paris each a stage in the flight across Europe and in the maturity of her heroine Covering the ages of about fifteen to twenty we get the full emotional uproar of the onset of womanhood as experienced against a fairly catastrophic background Nemirovsky is interested in the fluid psychology of her protagonist than in the Jamesian jigsaw puzzles that the story may resemble Touchingly precisely laid out though and perhaps truer to life than those other famous European labyrinths
